the democratic national convention in charlotte, but michelle obama spent time there. this race is pretty interesting. when you look at some of the exit polling you're seeing the president do very well among women. i think it was 52% we had in the smaller samples of the state, exit polls there. and we're looking at church attendance, where mitt romney is doing a little better than the president. >> brown: but this was the question, stu, for the president, to hold this coalition, the expanding the vote he was able to do in 2008 nay place like north carolina. and as we were hearing from mark and david earlier, in virginia and other places. >> right. in north carolina, with 60%, he has a fighting chance. i think most of us thought he would be a slight underdog, winning by opinion 3% when he was the insurgent candidate, change candidate, it looked more difficult. but north carolina is really interesting. the president won it it last time. it's a close race now. yet, today, the-- voters in north carolina have elected a republican as governor, pat mccrorp. and two years ago, republicans sweeppe

by first lady michelle obama. they included a massive gingerbread replica of the white house. >> that's gorgeous. >> complete, with an oversized version of bo. and bo is a recuring theme this year. there's also a massive life-sized replica of bo, with a string of lights hanging out of his mouth. i don't know if that's indicative of bo's personality. and there were 40 bo-flake ornaments all over the white house, hidden. i guess we don't have pictures of them. but trust me. they're adorable. and the first dog himself made an appearance at the festivities and quickly, became, of course, the center of attention. it is officially holiday time, once we see those decorations. >>> finally, everybody, more good news. seattle's woodland park zoo has its own holiday miracle. four newborn baby lion cubs. twice as nice because the typical litter is two cubs. the 3-week-olds just passed their first medical exams with flying colors. and there's two girls and two boys. not named yet. and we can't visit just yet. they're too little. that's "pop news." >>> we have a pop quiz for everybody. we asked, ho
states and michelle obama! >> -- would become a calm, cool leader once in office. a lot of people describe you as cool. that cuts both ways. fair description? >> people who know me well and people on the campaign trail, i don't think they'd describe me that way. i am in a lot of ways an extrovert when it comes to folks outside the beltway. i'm not sure it's hurt except maybe for some of my relations i think inside of the beltway here in washington. >> he's not easily categorized in any way. he wants it all. he's rational, first of all. he's a little bit deliberative and cautious. but then once in a while he'll go for the bold stroke because he wants something larger. >> the president's next decisions would move the right to anger. >> you better wake up, america! >> the left to disappointment. and leave a nation more polarized than ever. >> i think he came in feeling his own exceptionalism. and then the realities of washington smacked him in the head. >>> january 2009. the president's promises of hope and change would be put to the test by the worst financial crisis in modern histo
been here once. we have seen a lot of, many visits from michelle obama. jill biden then work with the reds in colorado springs. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. >> bill clinton could be coming to your state. an official says bill clinton is scheduled to campaign for the president today. in colorado. the president was supposed to be in colorado springs tuesday but cancelled due to the storm. guest: and we expect we will see, pending the outcome of the storm on the east coast, both candidates later in the week. governor mitt romney was here last week in the rally at but rocks that drew 9000 people. thousands were turned away. the following day, president obama held a rally in denver and drew crowds of up to 16,000. the governor this because deserve an amphitheater that has the capacity of 18,000. the president and his campaign were looking to go to boulder to hold a rally. they are try to turn out a lot of voters for the optics. >> these are great stories about real people in american history. very important moment in american history we do not know about three the fir

women have been giving thai newborns, the latest michelle obama, brian obama. >> we are now extremely excited. we are happy. >> reporter: in a village of kogelo his step-grandmother sarah said he's worked hard. people on the rest of this planet celebrating their vote for ones they couldn't cast. world markets also responded positively this morning, and only hours after winning his next term, obama got his first order of foreign business courtesy of british prime minister david cameron saying he wants obama's help to do more to protect the people of syria, put more pressure on the assad regime and assist the rebels. savannah. >> just one in a long to-do list for the president. thanks, michelle. >>> coming up next, big issue in the election, jobs. how to find them no matter what your age. but first this is "today" on nbc. >>> we're back now at 8:44. this morning on "today's money," jobs and the economy. two defining issues with voters during the past campaign. election may be over but not concern over where things are headed and where to find work. jean chatzky is "today's" forecasts ed
and we were poor, let me tell you about our beginning and michelle obama saying we couldn't afford anything, ann romney saying i remember the first business. we didn't know that it would even succeed. and then they did all the television shows and there were certain shows, for example, like "the view" in which mitt romney did not want to appear because he said that he thought the participants were sharp-tongued. i don't know where he got that impression but mrs. romney did come on and both of them have been to the battleground states many times since the convention campaign. mrs. obama going 21 times, mrs. romney, 27 times they went to nevada, colorado, iowa, wisconsin, ohio, virginia and new hampshire and these are the ones who have been the surrogates with mrs. obama, no, my husband is not a cold fish. we have dinner every night with the kids. you should know him. you should see that smile. i love him. you should love him. mrs. romney who is very close to her husband in the strategy, she plays a bigger role than just being the wife of, she is the one who said, he is not a stiff m
michelle obama and other surrogates have been there, but it is quite remarkable it would be this close, unless there had been a lot going on under the surface and in mobilizing the obama voters that maybe we haven't been able to see. >> and by all other reports, gwen, it was a big republican year. the republicans returned the governorship. the democratic governor did not seek reelection. the republicans won the governorship. i think the republicans expected to pick up a couple of house see the, and yet this presidential race-- >> there had been a possibility and again we don't know who the win the election, there had been the thought that president obama would win the electoral and not the popular but with the closeness in state like north carolina, that seems less likely. >> woodruff: i'd like to see the colorado numbers if we can get those up in a few minute. we haven't seen where things stand right now. ray suarez in chicago with the obama campaign. ray displai you know, gwen, people have been filing in here all night and starting to pay very close attention to the returns coming in
winners and there you have dr. jill biden and michelle obama as well. >> watch it on tv in the suite. go back to the hall in chicago right now. the crowd is getting very revved up. video of president obama on the screen. jake tapper, what else are you seeing? >> right now we have to say, they're clearly getting ready for the president to come out. remarks were put out the they are running as they have been for several hours now, these videos that have been a very popular part of the obama campaign. with supporters. they have been, running them. this of course is the famous fired up, ready to go speech, which president obama likes to tell at the end of his campaigns. he did it in 2008. he did, guess, last night in des moines, possible that was last night. last night in des moines he told the story about a little old lady at a campaign stop during desperate time for his campaign. and you hear president obama chanting, fired up, ready to go. the crowd very excited. a smaller cr eer crowd than we d to. >> president obama expected to come out. >> now, look at this. >> george, they're raising

. early this morning president obama began his victory celebration with his wife, michelle, and daughters malia and sasha on stage with him. their appearance was brief but significant. like all presidents obama's family is key to his success. for generations of americans, the kennedy white house is the iconic standard for the first family. young and beautiful, their t two-child home represented an american family portrait. >> a severance hope. was always depicted and portrayed by those many, many photographs of the children playing. >> ignition. >> reporter: as the space age took off jackie kennedy stood at the forefront. the world of fashion and arts and culture and her grace softened the hard edge of some of the president kennedy's touchest adversaries, like the soviet union nikita khrushchev. in the wake of her husband's death, she led the nation through grief, her son providing a tribute, more eloquent than any other words. >> i just want to thank you for making kids say no to drugs. >> reporter: nancy reagan championed the anti-drug just say no campaign. her son ron was a striking co
't use the president there but they sent michelle obama there a lot, she was just there on monday and bill clinton was in north carolina as well. >> we must stress it's early in the evening and we're operating on early figures. but this could be the first real surprise of the evening, if the trend continues down there. >> pelley: the strength of the president in north carolina. >> yes. >> pelley: thank you, bob. let's have a quick look at the presidential race map as it stands just now. the red states we are projecting for mitt romney, the blue states for president obama. but as bob just said, it is early yet. cbs news coverage of election night, 2012, will continue? just a moment. >> pelley: breaking news, cbs news projects that president obama will carry the state of new jersey. and its 14 electoral votes. with that let's have a look at the presidential race map. mr. obama has 78 electoral votes, mitt romney 82 electoral votes at this early stage on the way to 270 needed to win. anthony mason has been looking at some of the swing states where we don't have enough information
. at any rate -- >> he said none of the above. [ laughter ] >> bill: no, that's what michelle obama said this year. and heather during the break i saw on another channel here, they had the little tease will young people turn out the vote this year? so that is a big question about this campaign. what's the answer? >> it is a question we hear every time. of course, we know young people care. this generation, they're not like their older brothers and sisters of gen-x. they actually really care. they're not the slackers. i'll take the blame. the question is will they vote this time around. we've been out on the ground. we've registered over a million voters. >> bill: whoa! >> state by state. they're really engaged when you talk to them. i think the question is how many people were we able to reach. how many people were at the campaign table able to reach. was enough invested in turning out the young people. >> bill: where did you register the one million voters? >> college campuses, high school classrooms concerts an
parker? did you get an e-mail from michelle obama calling you friend? did you get a banner ad for a campaign when you were surfing the net? turns out you were targeted for these things by a sophisticated campaign technique called data mining, an effort to find out who individual voters are and how they'll respond to campaign messages. >> the goal is to come up with an individual level statistical prediction of your likelihood of supporting their candidate or of casting a ballot at all. >> then they target you for ads. the obama campaign is widely believed to have had the most sophisticated data mining operation central to his election victory this year. getting people out to vote who might not have otherwise. "time" magazine profiled it with a picture of the data crunchers working in a room called the cave. analysts say campaigns do this by going to commercial data warehouses which compile information on your buying habits, like what magazines you subscribe to. maybe information on where and how you like to travel. campaigns cross reference that with demographic information li
margin. they were obviously counting these votes deep into the night. but now nbc has called michelle bachmann winning re-election in her district. >>> well, president obama has won a second term. in the end the electoral talley, 303 for the president. 206 for mitt romney with florida still throughout and too close to call. and the popular vote, a difference of more than two million votes separated the candidates. after midnight, governor romney conceded the race in a short speech. >> this is a time of great challenges for america and i pray that the president will be successful in guiding our nation. at a time like this, we can't risk partisan bickering and political posturing. our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the people's work. and we citizens also have to rise to the occasion. >> and there was a lot of other business last night outside the race for the white house. republicans had hoped to win control of the senate last night. in the end, it was democrats who were able to flip several seats in their favor. in massachusetts this is really the headline race, elizabeth
west, for example, is running in a district where obama won. and michele bachmann is feeling the heat in minnesota, steve king in iowa is running against the wife after former governor, tom vilsack and he's feeling the heat, too, an interesting night. >> one of the interesting strategies, the reason they said they would take the house back, they would put pressure on the so-called orphan states, california, and where mitt romney isn't playing, they're not competitive in that race, but the house seats, okay, we can plow a lot of money in, and republican turnout will be down and we can turn the seats, but they're going to win a couple of them, but surprising so far in the polling, republicans are holding their own in those seats, why? >> you're right. they are he' doing this very aggressively, especially going after freshmen that won in 2010, guys like bobby schilling in illinois the first republican to get elected in his district in 30 years. the reason you're not going to see a huge shift is because one thing the republicans did well. not only being aggressive in the south and some of
a lot of the vice presidentials. we saw both michelle obama and ohio had to events. joe biden had her first and only solo campaign event yesterday in ohio. we are seeing a lot of the presidential candidates. we're going wherever they are. host: tom tory was joining us from cleveland. meanwhile we are live in lakewood, ohio. thank you for being with us. guest: my pleasure. host: next is carolyn, democrat's line. good afternoon. caller: i am just calling to say that i am very pleased with my president. he has done all he can to work with the republicans. they will not work with him. i am from a small town. it is evident how vindictive they are. the way they did president obama, and they have not done anything. they said religion was off the table. what i have read about organism, i do not want nobody that doesn't serve god. host: republican line. caller: i am just disgusted to listen to all these lies. i just listen to biden. i would like to know -- i like the americans to know if obama is president again we're going to end up like russia. there are thousands of family in cincinnati tha
and michelle obama who she is and can make america who we need to be with only if we focus to prioritize that. i saw that when he came into office and we were on the verge of potentially a second great depression people were focused on the stimulus and he said we can't pass the bill, an economic recovery build a central focus on education both investment and reform from early learning to head start to the kate wolf and post secondary. he's also had a consistent dissatisfaction with the status quo. it goes back education before comfortable with how we are doing he knows the kids across the country are getting shortchanged because we haven't done well enough and he has been a change agent to make changes in education. and he's always listened to people on the ground. i've been with him in new orleans before he was president listening to students and city members and what's actually going on. the believe has been translated into a core education policy agenda that i think has been very not only important but in some ways unique in recent days education. he shifted the role in many ways to focus
marriage. michelle obama is working and barack was in law school and now she's the first lady. theoretically people can flip-flop and to some extent it's not uncommon these days to have a marriage where couples kind of take turns and i think that takes the pressure off of marriage, say like the marriage is one read about in 1952 where the woman felt unfulfilled and the man felt like there was a news around his neck. that model of marriage has loosened up a bit and created happy stable marriages. >> host: but i wonder that kids. there are clearly more kids in daycare, small children than there were 40 years ago. >> guest: lots of countries have -- scandinavian countries, children go to daycare when they are one and mother's day home. i don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. mothers do -- politically neutral and they only measure like you and measure americans homage time do do you spend in leisure activities and how much time you spend with your kids? parents spend more time with their kids now than they did in the 60's and 70's. don't ask me how. >> host: but if, and i'
